I knew yesterday morning that the fuss over ABC’s 9-11 film was going to end up being overblown. As I checked out with emergency baby supplies at Target, the elderly female cashier smiled and asked me if I’d be “watching the Mannings tonight?”
Based on the ratings, it looks like the Mannings were the overwhelming choice of viewers. I was one of them. For what it’s worth, Peyton is substantially better than little brother Eli at this point, but the Giants have a heckuva running game. It’s hard to believe they lost given the way they were imposing their will on the ground.
